Thank you for visiting my personal fundraising page!
A colleague of mine founded the REACT Thyroid Foundation; a non-profit organization which promotes thyroid cancer awareness and prevention and raises money to support thyroid cancer research. Thyroid cancer is the fastest increasing cancer among men and women and it's estimated that 56.460 people will be diagnoses in the U.S in 2012.
My Personal Story:
As a 16 year-old, I was diagnosed with both Hashimoto's and Graves disease. This means that my thyroid is in a constant push-pull state between Hyper and Hypothyroidism. Because your thyroid gland determines the amount of energy your body uses, the amount of proteins you produce and how efficiently you fight infection I have certain months where I feel the effects of fatigue and a slow metabolism. Because your thyroid controls many and most aspects of your daily life, I encourage everyone to monitor how you feel and get your thyroid checked regularly!
Please join me in supporting this cause and the REACT Thyroid Foundation!
Thanks for your support!
